Who thinks this is a good idea?
Even if it's on Sunday?
But I'd like to play. Preferably on Saturday night.
Actually, I might just stay in ely and play pro evo.
who's for Super Mario Kart?!?! anyone!?!
I'd win at this.
not with my lil mario and winged turtle combo - mans cant test!
but I'm not going :(
I'm rubbish at Pro-Evo though.
Still like the idea of a DiS Mario Party meet up
especially as I refuse to be anyone but Ukraine.
If it was Fifa 97 on the other hand
i would be a God to you people. however I hardly ever play Pro Evo so it saddens me to say that I'm not all that.
this is me too
Can't we go fourway GoldenEye mad?
we have a playstation version. but i'm not sure how good it is.
I will win it though, so I am warning you all now.
they are my team of choice!
Can I just drink with someone, in a pub and stuff?
the Pompey v Utd. game?
and evo sounds HELLA good.
then play evo, then go to Zonino?
or alternatively, just fit it all together somehow?
i'll have to see what han's plans are.
it's the five o'clock kick off isn't it?
to distract han with mrs the warn and sneak to crablins to watch football and play pro evo?
sounds like a plan!
You boys go do that I'm going to have fun with all the girls.
Rappy's in the doghouse.
Nah he's not.
I can't wait to see you!!! :)
Am I allowed to give you a hug??
After all I'm on my own seeing as Rappers and Crabbers are together!
only for the duration of the football/evo.
Maybe if I shave...
to the football. you oaf
Have you got tickets yet?
Who's up for a game of World Cup Italia '90 on the Master System?
especially a penalty shoot-out! They looked so good!
SNES and Playstation. Those were my best years.
does this make me cool/dead/a bit fussy?
birthday party or not
so good that they even made up a non exsistant tournament for it.
Seriously tho, DiS four player GoldenEye tournaments are the future.
Pro Evo action.
And obviously win it all.
On sunday or something, I'm so the best Pro Evo player on here.
I made Rappy Jo cry*
I am quietly confident.
I beat my friend (who is good) 9-1 the other day.
is this on the PS2? It better be.
is Pro Evo 6?
I haven't got 6 but I've played it a fair few times.
but preferably Saturday for me.
with a team that isn't classic Brazil.
I need a good attacking team. I always concede heavily. My Pro Evo Philosphy is to score 2 goals for everyone One I let in.
is ultra-defensive. Smack the ball evry time I get it - hope a long ball bounces the way of one of my strikers and win 1-0.
is to pass the ball around aimlessly until one of my strikers find themselves in a goalscoring situation. i then proceed to miss any chances that i do get and then lose on penalties.
passing is my only skill when playing, I never score any goals. :(
My typical winning scores are like 6-4, 5-3 etc
cos I ALWAYS am Barcelona.
a bastard for all you with superstar masterleague players, unless you all bring your memory cards with you. I think of everything, I do.
no ehanced master league players will be allowed.
I was trying to say that many will have to change their style of play, lord knows i rely on 2-3 main players to do 'the job' for me.
that we are playing with random teams and not just picking the best team around. Random teams always gives better games.
That is a stupid idea.
Random teams is always the best way.
If you end up playing as Brazil against west midlands village, you'll lose. Just like real life.
Pro Evo games are more fun when you are playing with shit teams, it makes you a more humble person as well.
I don't want to play with a shit team cos they won't be able to perform my slick attacking moves.
I can see NO advantage to doing this.
it's half the fun!
Fun must be in short supply in Devon.
so any team works for him.
i refuse to play with random teams.
i needz quality wingers.
i hardly play anymore. which is somewhat worrying...
but i can't have internet and TV at the same time.
but my housemate's actually revising for once.
random condition? randomised team selection? any particular referee?
these are all variables that must be confirmed.
any tournament would not be concluded on the basis of skill; this may be realistic, but it does not provide closure of any sort.
everyone is 'Pompy'
playing as random teams negates skill. the players in bad teams have shit touches, no pace and are unresponsive.
it takes skilful timing, positioning and judgement: there is no point in attempting cryuff turns, so one must pass the ball backwards whereby an advantage is gained as the player receiving the ball is facing the opponent's goal.
except they control it badly and take seven minutes to respond to your cross and then a shite striker hits it over anyway.
it's so easy to avoid skying balls. particularly in 6.
except louis saha.
You can still do well if you stick to the basics.
my only problem is that i have a tendency to try and pass it in, and i usually do better with the shitty teams as i try far less of the ambitious reverse passes and dummies.
Take out any random elements and allow ANY team to be chosen.
Then it is purely about the skill and tactics of the player rather than anything else.
but picking teams like Brazil or Real Madrid means more chance of a ridiculous 40 yarder going in and the like. It's almost impossible to miss with Adriano from the edge of the box in Evo 5.
there's little skill in it, as you don't even need to work for the chances when the players are like that.
of course there is skill in it...
to fashion openings with bad players, a lot more skill then with good players.
doing it though.
It's just more boring. I've played like this. It's not as good.
i once won a game 8-0 with all the goals from Adriano from outside the box.
i don't think i actually got inside the box once with the ball, because every time it came to Adriano i just cut inside and hit it, and it went in.
it's silly, basically.
That ISN'T gonna happen against me.
i'm not usually a high scorer, i prefer to just defend. i just stuck adriano up front on his own slightly to the left, so when he gets in played to his feet he can just turn in and hoof it. it's very hard to defend against, as he only needs 2 touches and he can score from about 40 yards.
you want a game that plays to YOUR strengths.
I play attacking. I don't want bad players with poor conditioning who are unable to perform my usual style.
I COULD do it. But it would ruin the game for me.
i'd rather have a game which involves creativity and skill to score goals than one which relies on cynicism and exploiting the game's 'star players'.
surely if you're good going forward you'll be able to pretty much pass it in anyway, and not have to rely on 30 yarders? i'd give my left leg to be able to dribble past 5 players on Evo.
I play the way I do.
I usually TRY and pass it in. But I also rely on occassional long range shots.
if you're using teams like Barcelona, Real
Madrid, Inter, Man U etc., it's all too easy to just hoof it in from range compared to lesser teams.
My friends play with those teams. The challenge is to stop them.
Which I do.
a good player is one who willl adapt their style to the resources they have avaliable?
So if you a re a shit team then 30 yarders and dribbling past 3 players at once might be out the question, but the focus is then on long passing, one two's etc.
I just don't LIKE doing it.
This is pissing me off. I am gonna have to show you how this game is played with Djurgardens IF
can I be Valencia?
it reminds me about when I was playing against my mate with Atletico Madrid and Fernando Torres got into double figures. When you have strikers as good as them too it just takes a bit of space and a tap of shoot.
I agree to less good teams IF we have no random variables and I am able to choose the team.
if you're saying that a good player should adapt then that goes for you too. you have to deal with the thirty yarders et al.
But I they insist I would agree to compromise based on the above conditions.
i'd insist on green ratings throughout as well.
Why not Red?
any half good player on Red can just smack one in from 30 yards.
Random conditions I say, or all green.
play Human opponents on red.
Makes for a more exciting game.
I dunno. We're gonna have to compromise on this.
but i'd prefer to be able to put out a first XI
It's interesting to see how a team can adapt to losing an important player, just like real life really.
would work if we were playing as crap teams as they really wouldn't be that crap then.
i don't mind if you're talking mid level prem or serie a or whatever.
i DO mind if you mean trinidad and tobago. and that.
who isn't AZ, Ajax, Feyenoord or PSV.
I don't REALLY want to be Willem II.
It's too restricting.
choose your own team.
but some banned. no champions league regulars or something.
National teams but no previous world cup winners?
Still have like Holland avaliable.
And I bagsy Spain as they give Rappy Jo nightmares.
How about any club teams apart from:
Chelsea, Man U, Barca, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Arsenal, Liverpool.
Not too restrictive eh?
Perhaps them and Juve as well.
I need to find a team now.
after hours we are getting somewhere :-)
I may well be Roma...
i needz to have search through some teams...
lets decide on the day.
I still would love Barca tho.
because then defensive players just injure good players.
it's best to compete at a high level.
are so rare, even against players who will slide in at any opportunity.
Yes to Injuries.
you've never played my housemate. guaranteed an injury EVERY game.
probably make it dull.
cristiano ronaldo on red is just awesome. can go past anyone and scores from anywhere really.
I'll totally rape you all at it.
Let me be Inter or Chelsea.
That is a joke.
I'm certain I would win given the team I would wanna be.
bare in mind you have to be there within the constraints of time and space.
And I'm Arsenal.
I completely disregard the rest of this thread.
Well, when are people available for this?
I'm not during it during the Pompey v United game (5.15pm Saturday) and after that we should probably head towards Shoreditch.
Would Sunday be good? I'll be in London until 6pm (the cheap train) so I'll have some time free then.
That's of course if it's alright to come round and stuff.
i think me and commander cool are getting the train at liek seven or something so any time in the day.
i'm being villareal.
bagsied and that.
YOUR OWN JOYPADS.
